I was over in Dusseldorf for Valve World & went to this restaurant twice during my visit. I was recommended to visit by the staff at the hotel when I requested German food in the Old Town. It was 2 mins away from the Christmas Markets and main strip of bars & restaurants. The best food that I had was... More

It is a traditional German cuisine with variety of dishes. The service is excellent. However, the place can get really crowded in some occasions and hard to find a seat.

Called in here for just a drink in 2015 whilst visiting the markets so decided to have something to eat here on our 2016 trip. We called in to book a table for Saturday night & were told that at 7pm when we wanted to eat there would be no need to book. When we arrived at 6.50 we were... More

Taken to our table by a lovely gentleman with a slight stoop to his gait, very friendly and cheerful. Looked at the extensive menu and decided on the choice of sausages and my partner had the fried black pudding. Food was just OK, lukewarm, mashed potatoes with loads of lumps in, and very very vinegary sauerkraut. The waiter who served... More

...and very good at it! Good food and beer, just what we wanted. We look for a traditional experience and I think it's safe to say we found it.

Great brewery from Düsseldorf. Special and really good home made dishes from Germany. A lot of place and not so touristic. Well decorated and not so far from the alt stadt but waisters are sometimes rude...

Very good. But my deer was too fast to catch. Waiters hunting him for fifty minutes, then they brought a ragout. But next deer called Jägermeister was much much slower :-D

Been here with 20 people. Good local dishes (If you like) and nice beers. Really like how it was decorated. Good atmosphere also. Good restaurant if you would like to show local flavours.

Very old fashioned decor and the meals were to match which gave it a very authentic edge to other restaurants we had tried. The meals are traditional and plentiful. My husband had the oxtail stew and I had beef with almonds and dumplings. Both meals were lovely and we finished our plates. Would definately return.

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a colleague and it turned out to be a really nice place. The food was decent and the beer was good. The service was exceptional and the waiters were very polite and helpful. I would go ahead and say that the staff at this restaurant was certainly the most courteous I've... More
